Captain America and Bucky 620-000.jpg

So here's how Steve Rogers met James "Bucky" Barnes. And nothing about Bucky accidentally finding out Steve was Captain America and becoming his sidekick right then and there.

IF you have a friend who has watched and enjoyed Thor Ragnarok and wants an accessible and fun set of stories about Lord of Thunder, you might not choose the current Marvel series. An unworthy, one-armed Odinson and a years long war of the realms does not make a series new-reader friendly. You could try the original Journey into Mystery stories, but they are a bit exhausting to read. The Simonson run will be prominently displayed in all good bookstores, but that's also a long story to commit to.

And if you don't have a friend who enjoyed Thor Ragnarok, you should get one.



The only answer must be Thor The Mighty Avenger by Roger Langridge and Chris Samnee. It was released to little fanfare in 2013, but it's bloody brilliant. It has more of the humour of the original Thor film, but comes with a huge amount of heart.

It covers Thor's banishment from to Midgard, where is alone and a bit confused. Each issue is a standalone adventure with different guest stars. Towards the end of its run it starts to build a multi-issue story arc, but that is where it was cancelled and not completed.

What has Thor the Mighty Avenger got to offer you?  )

Thor The Mighty Avenger - The story of finding your place in a lonely and strange world and the friends you make along the way.

Steve is kind of tired of being the couch-surfer of the Marvel Universe, he’s never really had a place to call his own other than Avengers Mansion. [...] This is him getting back in touch with Captain America, learning how people perceive Captain America in light of Secret Empire. -- Mark Waid

Don't think anyone's posted anything about this before, so here you go.

So much like the Gwen Stacy covers of June 2015, Marvel is publishing variants which place Mary Jane Watson in the place of various Marvel heroes this June, coinciding with the first issue of Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man.

The first announcement can be found here. More covers have since been released, though I don't think they've completed the set. I posted my favorites of the ones I found behind the cut.

I hate to drag on him too much but, as I've stated a couple of times, I think Miles is at this point a fairly boring character. He was introduced in 2011 and he doesn't even have a proper rogues' gallery at this point. His father has a more developed personality and motivations than he does.

I do think the one big exception to this was the 'Prowler' arc. To this day it's the high point of the series for me. Looking at again it works because this is one of the few times where Miles is dealing with something that isn't the equivalent to Peter Parker's scraps; it involves him on a very personal level. I think if Bendis has used this approach for the rest of the series it would be a much better scenario.

'It is a challenge. I’m not accustomed to writing a character who’s this morally gray, but to make her a straight-up “super hero” would be a betrayal of who she is. I’m working hard at finding just the right beats to make her engaging without being wholly accessible.' -- Mark Waid
